Inhaltsangabe: Angkor, Cambodia is the largest religious site in the world. Built on a massive scale over a period stretching from the eighth to the 13th century, constantly evolving and changing, its structures have remained in constant use since its foundation — first as Hindu temples, then as Buddhist temples. In this sumptuous book, photographer David Stanford, best known for his evocative portraits of East Anglian country churches, turns his lens on this vast complex and its storied history. In more than 150 color photographs, Stanford brings Angkor to life. He takes readers on a tour of the galleries, enclosures, cloisters, and pavilions; the extraordinary carved faces looking out across encroaching jungle; the proliferation of carvings, bas reliefs, and inscriptions — all the components that make this Cambodia's quintessential icon, and one of the greatest of the World Heritage sites. Stanford's illuminating text examines the history and significance of Angkor.

Über den Autor: In the 1960s, David Stanford started out studying Painting and History of Art at Walthamstow School of Art alongside such figures as Ian Dury, Vivian Stanshall and Peter Greenaway. On graduation from the Royal College of Art, he established his own photographic studio, photographing a number of famous bands for album sleeves. Over the next 25 years, he shot a wide range of high-profile advertising campaigns and fashion spreads for magazines in London and Paris. He specialized in fashion and beauty, but also managed to cover everything from cars to wars, and even directed a number of TV commercials and film documentaries. He has recently returned to painting, but still travels extensively on his personal, eclectic, photographic adventures. He has enthusiastically embraced digital photography, and very rarely now uses traditional film. He lives in East Sussex.
